We have begun using Test Studio with Angular 13. We use Kendo UI for Angular as our control set.

When we record a step, the picker is often unable to pick the actual element. For example, regard this UserName form field. It's wrapped in many Kendo elements. The picker in the Recorder can't find the Input text box, but rather only the "FormField" element since it's at the top.

          <kendo-floatinglabel text="User Name">
              title="User Name"
          <kendo-formerror id="lblRequired1">Required</kendo-formerror>


Is there a guide on how to setup our Angular Kendo controls so that the Recorder can find the value of the Text box?

Hi Ian,

Thank you for starting a discussion on this topic. I will share more details from Test Studio's perspective and regarding recent updates to Kendo controls.

Test Studio has custom built translators that improve the recording and execution experience with complex controls, like Kendo UI for Angular. Since the controls have multi-level complex structure and some times dynamic IDs, we have our our own logic to handle those and provide more verifications and actions.

The latest release of Kendo controls introduced many changes to the controls' structure, including textbox, and this affected how Test Studio interacts with them. We are already working on that and in fact we the update from Test Studio side is scheduled for mid February 2022. Please update Test Studio with the new release and record the necessary steps again, either in new test or in existing one. The new versions of the translators should correspond to the controls and capture your actions correctly. 

I hope the above information will be helpful to you. Of course, I remain available to continue this conversation and provide more details or answer your questions.
